Hi, my name is Cathie and I am a niece of one of the POW's found here. I
came here out of curiosity since we had our family reunion and my
uncle's name came up. His name is Thomas E. Pettit and it is listed here
as Thomas E. Pettis. Please check the spelling for me if you could. The
bio is described just as I have been told as I was growing up so Iam
sure this is the right man I am speaking of. And if there is anymore
info on Thomas E. Pettit, I would greatly appreciate it. I would have
loved to have known him. I was told what a wonderful and brave man he
was!
Thanks in advance,
Cathie
